Solution set = $\displaystyle \{\frac{11}{3}\}$
Graph the LHS function and the RHS function in the same window. Use TRACE, INTERSECT, or a similar function of your graphing device to find the intersection points. The solution set consists of the x-coordinates of the intersection points. The device gives $(3.667,2)$ as the intersection. This has been rounded, so we check $\displaystyle \frac{11}{3}$ and find that it is the solution. Solution set = $\displaystyle \{\frac{11}{3}\}$
